Arts Access Australia (AAA) is the peak national body for arts and disability.

We work to increase opportunities and access for people with disability as artists, arts-workers, participants and audiences.

AAA is a disability-led organisation that provides three key services for our members:

    • Representation and Advocacy
    • Facilitation and Development
    • Information and Advice

We are unique because we work with people with disability in all areas of the arts, with all art forms, all age groups, and across all impairments.

We are a national organisation, and our headquarters will move around from time to time as we are hosted by our partners in different states and territories of Australia.
